photoblog image The Olaye portrait

The Olaye portrait

Decided to go a bit crazy, I was getting bored with my photography. This is one those images I love producing. Big props to Bunmi Olaye my model, she is one the best models I have ever worked with. Hope you guys like this sorta stuff like I do. I wish I had the time to more stuff like this.

How about some processing notes? I'd be curious how you did this. It is an interesting idea for a rather un-photo-like image.
sk: this is all about layers and blending in photoshop (soft light)
Good stuff buddy.

I'll start by saying I'm not a fan of this type of image - that is, I'm not a fan of trying it myself - but I do appreciate the work that's gone into it and the result is visually appealing.

I was always a fan of fantasy art as a schoolboy, probably because it usually involved beautiful girls with impossible figures in sprayed on leather suits and thigh length boots.

This one is almost there, but I must say she looks like she's weariing a very bad wig. I think that area in particular needs a bit more work.
You've done a lot of stuff here that I know nothing about, wish I could though. This isn't my style of a pic so it's hard to come with more feedback other than love to see experimental stuff, so keep up the good work smile

It looks like an excellent portrait...or at least what i can see of it. I think it would have been much better without all the fancy PP.
Very creative and successful !
